Celebration Rice Krispie Bites are yummy, bite-sized balls of crunchy, marshmallow-y delight. They are so easy to make and even more delicious to eat. Make up a batch for your Easter guests or a Spring Bunch. They’d also be a fun dessert for the kids to make for Mom on Mother’s Day. We’d be happy to eat them any old day!
How to make Celebration Rice Krispie Bites
You will need:
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal
- Butter (We use Salted, Sweet Cream Butter)
- Mini Marshmallows
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Yellow
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Blue
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Pink
The Celebration Rice Krispie Bites are Purple, Blue, Pink and Yellow so you will need to make four batches of Rice Krispie Treat mixture.
The base for our Celebration Rice Krispie Treats is our Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe which we have adjusted and perfected over the years until it is now absolutely the best Rice Krispie Treat recipe we have ever tasted. You can find all the directions you’ll need to make these delicious treats right here.
First, make a 2 Cup batch of Rice Krispie Treat mixture (2 Tbsp. Butter/2 Cups Mini Marshmallows/2 Cups Cereal). Add the food coloring BEFORE you add the Rice Krispie Cereal. To create this pretty shade of Pink we used 2 drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food Coloring. Allow the pink Rice Krispie Treat mixture to cool enough so you can handle it but that it is still malleable. To get Rice Krispie Bites that were the same sized I measured .5 oz. of the mixture on my food scale and then used my hands to roll it into a ball. If the mixture is too sticky, rub your fingers with some butter. I was able to make 12 Rice Krispie Treat Bites from this 3 cup batch of Rice Krispie Treat Mixture.
For the yellow Rice Krispie Treat Bites, follow the directions for the pink Rice Krispie Treat Bites but add 4 drops of yellow Wilton Color Right Food Coloring to the marshmallow mixture.
For the bright blue Rice Krispie Treat Bites, follow the directions as listed above. We got this pretty color of blue by using the following amounts of 2 drops of Blue Wilton Color Right Food Coloring. Don’t add too much blue food coloring or you will end up with Aqua/Teal Rice Krispie Bites as the yellow from the marshmallow mixture and the Rice Krispie Cereal will mix with the blue food coloring to make teal.
For the purple Rice Krispie Treat Bites, follow the directions as listed above. We got this pretty color of purple by using the following amounts of Wilton Color Right Food Coloring;
6 Drops of Pink
2 Drop of Blue
Allow the Celebration Rice Krispie Bites to cool before you store them. This is a great Easter treat and you can make it well ahead. Rice Krispie Treats freeze up great in an air-tight container.
Celebration Rice Krispie Bites are so fun and colorful and delicious.
